If you own a Fitbit Charge 5 and are chronically forgetful, there’s some good news: according to 9to5Google and android police, the latest fitness tracker update adds an app that lets you ring your phone from your wrist. This function is available on some Fitbit smartwatches for a while, but it’s exciting to see it come to one of the company’s simpler devices, especially as someone who pings my phone multiple times a day when I had an Apple Watch.

Charge 5 owners should automatically get the Find My Phone feature when they install the 171.50 update. Instructions on how to do this can be found in this Fitbit help article. Reportedly, the option appears when you swipe down from the top of the screen, amid other options like sleep mode and payments. If you tap it, your phone will start ringing even if it’s on silent (or at least it should be based on how other Fitbits work).

I say “allegedly” and “would” because the update still seems to be rolling out. When I go to the Fitbit app, tap my profile picture and select my Charge 5, the app doesn’t say an update is available. The 171.50 update is also not listed on Fitbit’s official tracker at the moment of writing. Hopefully it will show up for the next time I lose my phone which could really be any moment.
